1. SOCIETY OF THE DIVINE WORD (SVD) (Feast Day September 8)

The Society of the Divine Word is a religious Congregation of Priests and Brothers founded in Steyl, Holland, in 1875 by St. Arnold Janssen as a foreign missionary society whose members work "first and foremost where the Gospel has not yet been preached at all or only insufficiently and where the local church is not yet viable on its own". The principle object of the Society is the propagation of the faith in the mission. The Divine Word Missionaries conduct retreats, undertake pastoral work, distribute Catholic literature and help to promote the "Co- Missionary Apostolate" a purely spiritual association to help Missionaries.

2 . SALESIANS OF DON BOSCO (SDB) (Feast Day January 31)

Founded by Don Bosco in 1864, they work with the firm belief that investment in youth-resource development is the only sure way to building up a better nation and a more humane world. Salesians are Catholic men and women who choose to live their baptismal calling in the spirit and style of St. John Bosco, the Friend and Father of Youth: called to be signs and witnesses of the Risen Christ, and active bearers of his love for the young after the example of Jesus the Good Shepherd.

Each member shares the responsibility for the mission to the young. Together, they use their gifts and talents to help the young encounter, celebrate and give witness to God who loves them all. Salesians are persons who want to dedicate their lives to the service of youth, especially the poor and marginalized. The Salesians fulfill their Charism in a variety of Apostolate: through educational institutions both formal and non formal, parishes, missions, youth centers, boardings, hostels, rural social development and centers for disadvantaged youth.
